I have been to the Grand Paradise with salva fauna. We've a great amount of wild animals in a the alps.It's always a pleasure to be guided by Lucas who knows so well to show us hidden animals in this marvelous panorama. For this trip you have to be prepared physically to walk up and down for few hours. I really recommended this trip.

We had no idea that so much birdlife was flying through this small local area. Lucas shared his enthusiasm and many stories with us. I enjoyed the hints to help us become better at recognizing birds we see. Lucas is so quick with his scope and camera, that he was able to help us see things up close that we wouldn't have known to notice. It was a lovely morning that would have been stunning even without the birds.

Learning about this local bio-diversity hotspot and introducing our 7 year old to the fauna here. Jonathan was an amazing and knowledgeable guide. The spring time was great to visit - with the entire woods alive with bird calls. Will definitely recommend it!

A fabulous morning, an introduction to the exceptional birdlife of Lake Geneva. I'm not an experienced birdwatcher but I enjoyed every minute, and learned a lot. Jonathan is an expert, and knows at what level to pitch explanations for someone who is an an enthusiast but has far less knowledge. As well as enjoying the experience, I have a marvellous keepsake, as Jonathan followed up by sending me an e-list of everything we had seen with a link to the ebird website, so I could relive the morning and learn about the beautiful birds we had seen. I am keen to have another outing with Jonathan, hopefully to the Marais de Sionnet. I would highly recommend this company and this experience.

If you are passionate about nature, and you want to find someone who could accompany you in an amazing experience, enjoying nature at its best with an ethical approach, well, Salva Fauna is the place for you. I believe the private tour I had with them was absolutely perfect. The guide, Lucas, was funny, prepared, passionate, and extremely helpful. He shared with me a number of anecdotes, facts, and tricks, which allowed me not only to step up my photographic skills and take amazing pictures but also to enjoy the whole day in a much more meaningful way. The guys from Salva Fauna have the kind of approach I have been searching for a long time: nature is to admire, and to enjoy, but not to exploit just to take good pictures. When in nature, it is about ethics, and by respecting nature, and the wellbeing of the animals, you develop a much stronger bond with what surrounds you. If you are asking yourself if it's worth it, trust me: it is.
